Alternative diablo 2017 3

The most recent Diablo game was Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer, which was released in 2017. At the time of writing, Diablo 4 is still under production and isn’t due to be released anytime soon. Until Blizzard gives us a date to look forward to, here’s 10 other games that you might like to play.

Quick Links

Best Games Like Diablo 3

Borderlands

Borderlands 3

Borderlands and Diablo are great games to play if you enjoy being rewarded during your play. With every monster that’s slain and every quest or mission that you complete, you’re given loot and money that can help you further your character’s development.

Diablo is quite grungy and dark compared to the bright colors of Borderlands, but that’s actually a positive for many players who try the Borderlands series. Bright colors make threatening situations seem less dangerous, after all.

Path of Exile

Path of Exile

Path of Exile is a free-to-play RPG that is extremely well-known in the gaming community. Part of this is because it’s free, the other part is because it’s a true alternative to the Diablo games. This MMORPG allows players to do a lot of experimentation with their character build, with consistent updates from the developers.

Path of Exile 2 is due to be released in 2021, though the BETA should appear sometime later this year. We don’t know exactly when, due to the current climate with the pandemic, but Grinding Gear Games are keeping an eye on the situation to make an announcement.

Torchlight

Torchlight II

Diablo and Torchlight share a few commonalities. The structure of both series is very similar, and anyone who’s played a Diablo game will be familiar with how Torchlight works from the get-go. Torchlight also supports player versus player fights – something that has long been a feature in Diablo.

You can choose from four classes, customize your skills, and explore the map. In Torchlight 2, you gain the ability to move past the confines of the town and get into messes in even more locations. The best thing about Torchlight is how you can adapt the skills of your character to your own personal playstyle, whether you’re more active or more passive when you fight.

Titan Quest

Titan Quest

Titan Quest is a game that brings myths to life. There are titans that have escaped their captivity and are raging across the world, destroying everything in their path. As a player, it’s your job to help rescue humanity from their fate by taking out the titans.

There are hundreds of ways to customize your character in Titan Quest, from the 28 different classes that you can choose, to the items that you can equip onto your character that change depending on the class you’ve chosen.

Hero Siege

Hero Siege

A hack and slash game at its finest, Hero Siege allows you to fell hordes of your enemies with your character’s skills. You start by choosing one of the eight available classes and set out on your adventure in Tarethiel Forest. The moment you start playing is the moment it’s your job to take down any and all enemies in your path.

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr

Warhammer 40,000 Inquisitor – Martyr

Warhammer fans, rejoice, for this is one video game that is worth playing. Released in 2018, Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr is almost like a video game version of a Warhammer campaign. The camera in the game is top-down, giving you an overview of the action while you fight.

The game’s system even includes environments that can be destroyed while you’re battling on them. Play by yourself or with a friend, choose your class and stand with the Inquisition to battle against Chaos worship.

Grim Dawn

Grim Dawn

Based on the same engine that runs Titan Quest, Grim Dawn is an action RPG that is set in a much darker world than some of the other games we’ve spoken about on this list. The game is based around the Victorian era, which only adds to the thematic darkness of the game’s setting.

You’ll start your journey in the war-torn world of Cairn, where humans are almost extinct and barely clinging to their livelihood. This world has become the fighting ground for an eternal war, where one of the opposing sides use humans as resources, while the other tries to prevent that from happening.

Lost Ark

Lost Ark

When it comes to graphics and presentation, Lost Ark is one of the best games. The storylines are a lot more complex than those that you’ll come across in the Diablo series, as well. Though whether that holds up when Diablo 4 is released remains to be seen.

Lost Ark is currently only available in Korea, but there are rumors that it may soon be available for North America to play, which is a step to getting the game out worldwide. When it is released to the West, the wait will have been worth it.

Warhammer: Chaosbane

Warhammer - Chaosbane

Our second Warhammer game on this list – but can you blame us, considering how much Warhammer and Diablo have in common? Warhammer: Chaosbane is a hack and slash game that has a lot of dark themes that give it a Diablo-esque feel.

As one of four playable characters, you’ll be battling your way through numerous creatures to rid the world of their kind. Your character choice will denote what skills you have in the game, including whether or not you have any magic to play with.

Wasteland 2

Wasteland 2

The original Wasteland game was released back in 1988 and was one of the first MMORPGs to ever be created. Wasteland 2 is based on the nuclear war between America and Russia that happened in 1998. This game was created by the producer of the first Fallout game, so you know that it’s sure to be amazing.

Wasteland 2 is a turn-based game that uses tactical combat. The setting is an alternative timeline to what actually happened in history, giving the player more control over the events of the war. There’s also a Director’s Cut version of the game, which used to be the “Game of the Year” edition. This edition is just an enhanced version of the game, there are no real differences between the two.

Top 13 BEST Games like Diablo

Games Like Diablo If You’re Looking For Something Similar

The hack-and-slash, action role-playing gameplay of the Diablo series is so damn compelling. Constantly picking up loot drops, fighting against formidable creatures, and perfecting your character’s loadout is all part of the fun. However, when you’ve done all there is to do in Diablo, Diablo 2, and Diablo 3, you may be wondering if there are games like Diablo to play if you’re looking for something similar. Fortunately, you’re in luck, and we’ve got a complete list of games like Diablo for you just down below.

Also check out our Top 10 Best Loot-Heavy Games That Will Eat Up Your Time if you’re looking for even more suggestions.

Torchlight 2

Games Like Diablo

games like diablo, diablo, diablo 2, diablo 3, something similar

Torchlight 2 is one of the strongest games like Diablo in this list of games, and while it doesn’t necessarily do anything new, it does almost everything very well.

Although Torchlight 2 is definitely superior, there’s also no reason you can’t start with the first game, which is also a pretty strong entry. Both games take place in a fantasy world where a mysterious ore called Ember can imbue people and items with magical power.

A mining boomtown known as Torchlight is nestled above a rich vein of Ember, drawing adventurers and all other kinds to it, seeking fame and fortune.

If you’ve played Diablo you’ll feel right at home with Torchlight 2, which uses a similar top-down action-RPG style. Dungeons are randomly generated, and you’ll have access to four different classes to choose from: Engineer, Outlander, Berserker, and Embermage.

Unlike a lot of randomly generated games, however, each dungeon in Torchlight is made up of “chunks” hand designed with special objectives or objects to interact with, as well as scripted events. So while each dungeon is random, the developers wanted to make things feel more purposeful or unique.

There’s plenty of loot to grab from enemies to change up your equipment, and you can periodically return to Torchlight to buy items or take a break. Even better, you’ll have a pet creature that accompanies you through the game to keep you company while you explore.

Marvel Heroes

Games Like Diablo

games like diablo, diablo, diablo 2, diablo 3, something similar

If you’re a fan of both Marvel and are looking for games like Diablo, Marvel Heroes is the game for you. It’s a free-to-play action RPG that features a massive roster of characters to play as, with everyone from Spider-Man to Squirrel Girl.

There are over 100 different characters to choose from, as you travel through various locations in the Marvel Universe like Hell’s Kitchen, Avenger’s Tower, and Latveria.

The game features a typical ARPG combat system, with each character having various skills and abilities to use. You unlock skill points as your hero levels up which you can put into skill trees that generally focus on specific abilities of each character, like the Assault, Firepower, and Demolition trees for the Punisher.

Interestingly, the game also features raids, allowing groups of 10 players to take on a series of bosses and challenges. There’s a story mode to complete, as well as many optional activities and events.

While the game is free-to-play and has microtransactions, you can obtain pretty much everything by earning the in-game currency. Marvel Heroes might be a nice change of pace from the typically dark and fantasy themed settings of action-RPG like Diablo.

Path of Exile

Games Like Diablo

games like diablo, diablo, diablo 2, diablo 3, something similar

Path of Exile is another title heavily inspired by Diablo, although unlike others it’s a free-to-play title on PC and Xbox One. You play as an Exile, cast away and struggling to survive on the island of Wraeclast. You need to gain power and the ability to take revenge against the people that wronged you.

Much like Torchlight, every area in the game, except for major encampments, is randomly generated. The developers, Grinding Gear Games, set out to make a Diablo style game, as they were frustrated by the lack of releases in the genre.

As you might expect, you play the game from a top-down perspective, with action-based combat. There are six classes to choose from, with each centered around one of three core attributes: strength, dexterity, and intelligence.

Path of Exile has an incredibly fast combat system that pits you against a wide array of enemy types, with loot and items also being randomly generated. You can slot different skill gems into your equipment to alter your skills in battle and provide stat boosts as well. Because of this, a big focus of the game becomes finding equipment that works well together and gives you the best advantage.

This game is definitely one of the best games like Diablo, and one that no fan of Blizzard’s series should miss. There’s plenty of content to dig into as well, since the game has received two sizable expansions at this point.

Titan Quest

Games Like Diablo

games like diablo, diablo, diablo 2, diablo 3, something similar

Titan Quest has a big difference from most top-down RPGs, its setting. The game is set in Ancient Greece, having you do battle with mythical creatures and foes, and you’ll also be traveling to Ancient Egypt and Asia.

Gameplay is pretty standard for what you’d find in the genre, and you’re able to choose from weapons like swords, clubs, axes, staves, and more. After leveling up you’ll gain access to masteries, a skill tree system that lets you hone in on the abilities of your character.

There are eight total masteries to pick from, and you’ll be able to focus on two at a time, mixing and matching skills how you want.

Interestingly, Titan Quest also features co-op multiplayer that lets you join other players’ games and battle monsters together, even being able to exchange loot. The game also features a level editor with tons of different resources and options for players to build and share their own levels.

On top of these features, Titan Quest’s unique setting makes it one of the finest games like Diablo right now.

Borderlands

Games Like Diablo

borderlands 2, xbox ultimate game sale, games, last gen, must play, cannot miss, games like diablo, diablo, diablo 2, diablo 3, something similar

Borderlands may not be quite what you imagine when you think of games like Diablo, but there’s a ton in common between the two. The whole progression and gameplay loop of Borderlands is very Diablo-esque.

Picking up new guns and weapons is the main focus of Borderlands, and there’s an absolutely absurd amount of loot to be found in the game. There’s also four, highly different, classes for you to choose between when you start the game.

Each one approaches the game differently, and each is a Vault Hunter on the alien planet of Pandora, searching for their fortune. Borderlands is well known for its weird and wacky characters, like Craptrap, the vulgar but lovable robot.

Borderlands is easily one of the most loot heavy games out there, but it’s a first-person shooter through and through. Although the gameplay may be significantly different from Diablo, if you’re looking for a robust loot system that can compare to the series, you might want to give Borderlands or Borderlands 2 a try.

Grim Dawn

Games Like Diablo

games like diablo, diablo, diablo 2, diablo 3, something similar

Grim Dawn is made by Crate Entertainment, although it runs on the same engine as Titan Quest, which they licensed from the developer Iron Lore. The game is set in a dark fantasy world inspired by the Victorian Era, with the human race driven to the brink of extinction.

The world of Cairn is home to a fierce battle between two otherworldly powers, with pockets of humans scattered, watching and learning about the weaknesses of the two invaders.

Grim Dawn sticks more to the old style of Diablo I and II, opting for carefully crafted levels instead of randomly generated games like Diablo III or Path of Exile.

It’s a traditional hack-and-slash experience with plenty of loot, a crafting system, and improved physics over that of Titan Quest.

Grim Dawn also features a hybrid class system that allows you to mix and match abilities of its various classes like Necromancer, Inquisitor, Arcanist, and Occultist. If you want something that more matches the style of classic Diablo, then look no further than Grim Dawn.

Magicka 2

Games Like Diablo

games like diablo, diablo, diablo 2, diablo 3, something similar

Magicka 2 is one of the games like Diablo the most in terms of gameplay style, although it does feature a loot system that gives you access to unlockable weapons and equipment. You play as a small, but powerful, wizard, exploring various dungeons and locations.

The real trick to Magicka 2 is its ambitious magic system, which lets you combine a variety of spells in quick button presses. The point of the game is experimenting with all these combinations and finding what weird and powerful attacks you can unleash.

There is logic behind the system, like combining water and fire to create steam, but there’s so many possibilities to take advantage of.

Of course, Magicka 2 isn’t just a single-player game, as you can bring up to three other friends along to really make things hectic. Because of its gameplay style Magicka can, at times, almost feel like a combination between the hack-and-slash genre and something like a twin stick shooter.

Still, it’ll definitely scratch that Diablo itch, and its magic system can be a heck of a lot of fun.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing

Games Like Diablo

games like diablo, diablo, diablo 2, diablo 3, something similar

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is based on the classic novel Dracula by Bram Stoker. It’s set in a Gothic-noir version of 19th-century Europe, casting you as son of the titular Van Helsing himself. The game doesn’t stick beat for beat with the novel of course, working in magic, monsters, and advanced technology.

A lot about Van Helsing’s gameplay matches the Diablo mold, with hack-and-slash focused gameplay, and a skill system that allows you to build your character in different ways.

It’s another game that features four-player co-op meaning you don’t need to go it alone, and there’s even a unique feature that lets you protect your hideout with different traps and defenses, to fend off waves of enemies.

There’s plenty here to appeal to fans of Diablo, and even two more games in the series if you find you want to keep going.

Victor Vran

Games Like Diablo

games like diablo, diablo, diablo 2, diablo 3, something similar

Victor Vran sports a Helsing-inspired setting, casting you as the demon hunter Victor Vran who travels to the fictional city of Zagarovia. There he has to help the city’s inhabitants ward off a demon invasion of unknown origins.

Victor Vran is one of the games like Diablo most in its gameplay style, as it isn’t incredibly loot heavy. However, there’s still a moderate amount of equipment and weapons to be found that directly affect your character.

Each player starts as the same Victor Vran, but interestingly your class and skill set is determined by the weapon you choose to use. Demon powers offer further customization letting you level up and gain skills like blink or time bubble. Each area in the game also has a number of optional objectives to complete that offer extra rewards.

Victor Vran has a lot of customization you can make for your character, and its combat is a bit faster than some of the other games like Diablo. Combine that with the interesting mix of fantasy and science in its setting, and you have one of the more unique games like Diablo.

Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms

Games Like Diablo

games like diablo, diablo, diablo 2, diablo 3, something similar

Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms puts a unique spin on fitting into the category of games like Diablo, and it features a dark aesthetic and story. Instead of playing as the hero you play as the Devourer, a powerful demon with the ability to travel between the living and the shadow world.

You have the ability to devour the souls of your enemies, actually putting them under your control as playable characters in the living world. Up to three enemies can be under your control at a time, allowing for a party of four.

There’s plenty of loot to be found in both worlds, and the ability to switch between the two really is the game’s biggest strength. Both the living and shadow world have their own secrets and quests, encouraging exploration on the player’s part.

Dungeon Siege II

Games Like Diablo

games like diablo, diablo, diablo 2, diablo 3, something similar

Dungeon Siege is one of the other series that’s brought a lot of games like Diablo, and Dungeon Siege II is arguably the strongest entry in the series. Releasing in 2005, the second game made some big improvements on the first both graphically and gameplay-wise.

Dungeon Siege II revolves around fighting a war against the evil nation of Valdis, who you originally worked for as a mercenary. You create your character and build a party of four characters as you adventure, and there are four different skill paths to choose from; melee, ranged, combat magic, and nature magic.

The customization system is quite deep, with multiple options on how you want to pursue skills, or if you want to multiclass and build a hybrid character.

Fans of Diablo (and games like Diablo, for that matter) also won’t be disappointed, as there’s a ton of loot to be found in the game, with plenty of equipment to make your party stronger.

Bastion

Games Like Diablo

games like diablo, diablo, diablo 2, diablo 3, something similar

Bastion may be quite a bit shorter than most games here, but it has Diablo-like elements while trying some incredibly original things. The entire game is framed around the voice of a narrator, walking through everything you do on-screen. You play as “The Kid,” wandering through a broken world destroyed by the Calamity and unraveling the mystery about it.

Bastion plays out from an isometric angle, and it’s one of the faster-paced games like Diablo. You can carry two weapons at any given time, which can be swapped out at various points throughout the game.

It doesn’t have quite the same loot focus as games like Diablo, but during each level you do collect special moves and health potions to use. Both of these function as kinds of “loot” in matches, providing a unique feel instead of just being able to buy whatever you want.

If you want a gripping narrative with Diablo-style gameplay, Bastion is a sure fit.

Divinity: Original Sin

Games Like Diablo

games like diablo, diablo, diablo 2, diablo 3, something similar

Divinity: Original Sin is an interesting title, as it actually combines gameplay elements from multiple genres. It has the loot-heavy focus of games like Diablo, but combat actually plays out in a turn-based manner. You play as a pair of “Source Hunters,” whose job it is to hunt down traces of Source Magic in the world and eliminate it.

There’s a gripping narrative to be found in the game, and lots of exploration and item hunting. Combat, however, is probably the most interesting part of Divinity: Original Sin. While it is turn-based, there’s a big emphasis on using the environment.

Throughout the game, your arsenal of spells and abilities grows vastly, and you’ll need to do some experimentation to see how things combine or interact with the environment. You can even play in co-op mode with a friend if you want to bring someone along for the ride.

Original Sin is one of the great games like Diablo that scratches the itch, while simultaneously giving you a different kind of experience.

Vikings – Wolves of Midgard

Games Like Diablo

games like diablo, diablo, diablo 2, diablo 3, something similar

Vikings – Wolves of Midgard is one of the few action-RPG games like Diablo with a Norse mythology setting, and that alone sets it apart from the rest of the genre. At the start you’ll create your Viking warrior, outfitting them with different items of clothing, jewelry, and tattoos, then select a Deity which chooses your class.

The story takes place after Ragnarok, with you being the sole hero that can save the Viking world. There’s a moderate amount of loot but systems like crafting and stat points are kept streamlined so there’s more of a focus on combat.

During combat you’ll need to use a mix of basic attacks, dodges, and skills, with many of the game’s bosses having their own unique mechanics.

Vikings is relatively short, and it may feel fairly simplistic next to some of the more complex games of the genre. However, it’s unique setting makes it an interesting alternative.

DeathSpank Series

Games Like Diablo

games like diablo, diablo, diablo 2, diablo 3, something similar

There are actually three games in the DeathSpank series with DeathSpank, DeathSpank: The Thongs of Virtue, and The Baconing. Each game in the series serves as a kind of lite, humorous take on the Diablo-style title.

There’s a wealth of different weapons and armor that you can equip, and combat revolves around chaining combos together. DeathSpank has a Justice Meter that, when full, can be used to unleash a devastating special attack on enemies.

Each game has various main quests and side quests to undertake, and there’s a degree of choice worked in that can change how the narrative plays out.

DeathSpank’s writing is generally good, and the more humorous take is a breath of fresh air compared to the usual dark and mature titles we get for the genre.

The games are a bit smaller than your usual games like Diablo, clocking in at roughly 9-15 hours each, but the bite-sized games might be a good change of pace.

And there you have our full list of games like Diablo if you’re looking for something similar. We’ll be updating our post soon with more games as they release, so be sure to check back in the near future.

15 WARHAMMER: CHAOSBANE

Replace Diablo and his brothers (or sisters) with the Chaos Gods of the Warhammer mythos and you get Warhammer: Chaosbane. We're not discounting the uniqueness of this game, of course-- in fact, it might even be more engaging than Diablo III since it's a lot darker and more violent.

What makes this one a more pleasant experience compared to the usual roulette hell of item drops in aRPG games is how each and every item you get is only for the class you picked. That means no trash items and less time wasted for your builds. Anyway, this one's a no-brainer for you Warhammer fans out there.

14 VICTOR VRAN

Can't get enough of slaying demons? Victor Vran has you covered. In terms of novelty, Victor Vran doesn't really offer anything new other than the Victorian setting. However, it does all the elements of Diablo-esque games well enough that it's highly-rated on Steam and can stand on its own merit.

It's worth trying out along if you're a Diablo fan. There are tons of customization options for the character though you only get to play as Victor Vran himself. The action is intense enough, probably more so than most Diablo clones and makes Victor Vran engaging and fun enough to withstand the grind.

13 LOST ARK

As soon as Diablo fans saw what South Korean developers were doing with Lost Ark, they were completely sold on the game. There's currently nothing like Lost Ark when it comes to aRPGs and presentation. Both the gameplay and the storytelling blows Diablo III out of the water and would have given the franchise a run for their money... if only the developers released it to the West.

As it is, there is currently no way to play Lost Ark officially. You have to do a bit if VPN magic and faking your citizenship in order to try out this hidden Korean gem. If you do manage to be lucky or persistent enough, we assure you, Lost Ark is something that can make the wait for Diablo IV a lot more tolerable.

12 SHADOWS: AWAKENING

You'll find plenty of visual similarities between Diablo III and Shadows: Awakening. It's a dark fantasy dungeon crawler that lets swap between four playable characters on the fly instead of just being confined to one of them. This opens up many possibilities and variations for gameplay that doesn't necessarily require replays.

If you're also looking for something different and with a dash of novelty, Shadows: Awakening can offer that in the form of puzzles. They're a nice change of scenery especially if you get tired of the usual grinding. It's also more generous than most aRPGs since you can save anytime you like without checkpoints.

11 DUNGEON SIEGE

Like Shadows: Awakening, lots of gameplay elements separate Dungeon Siege from Diablo games. However, at its core, it very much shares the same spirit as the Blizzard franchise. In Dungeon Siege, you get to control your humble player character and make them go on a murderous adventure for riches or better apparel and weapons.

The combat in the first game was intense enough to set it apart from many other isometric RPGs back in 2002. Meanwhile, the sequels add some tweaks to the core gameplay that drastically change how you approach combat and character builds.

10 DIABLO II

If you've played Diablo III to death and are looking for more Diablos (or his brothers) to slay, then help yourself to a vintage serving of Diablo II. Thanks to mods like Median XL, you can now enjoy Diablo II on a much higher resolution than when it was originally installed. Suffice to say, Diablo II aged like fine wine-- at least for single player.

It improved upon the core formula of the first Diabloand added some revolutionary new features, so it quickly became the template for most isometric action roleplaying games (aRPGs). Besides, the atmosphere and music of Diablo II are still somewhat unmatched these days.

9 TITAN QUEST

One game that came close to taking the crown from Diablo II was Titan Quest, released back in 2006. That's because its developers introduced a two-class combination system that shook theory-crafting and min-maxing in aRPGs to their core. Beyond that, it was the standard hack-and-slash dungeon crawler with an open-world format.

Even so, Titan Quest, like Diablo II, has aged well these days, enough to warrant a remaster from the developers. That means you'll have no problem firing up your Titan Quest once again and going on a global mythological adventure to slay some Titans who are causing trouble.

8 GRIM DAWN

Made by the same developers responsible for Titan QuestGrim Dawn continues its developers' flagship formula of the dual-class system. This means Grim Dawn is every bit as diverse in gameplay as Titan Quest, but ditches the mythology setting for a darker medieval fantasy romp.

In that sense, it's a lot closer to Diablo III in terms of atmosphere, though it's certainly more mature and grungy. Gameplay might also be a little slow for people who were used to the fast-paced combat of Diablo games, but it's pretty much the same hack-and-slash looter that we all came to love.

7 LAST EPOCH

One of the newer entries in this list, Last Epoch is a modest yet commendable indie aRPG in the same vein as Diablo. It also incorporates a dynamic class system similar to Grim Dawn's or Titan Quest's where your base class can evolve into something more powerful and versatile.

Last Epoch also sports a rather similar and familiar user interface with the spherical health and mana orbs that the first Diablo game popularized. The indie dark fantasy aRPG is still in early access, but the price is affordable enough not to discourage anyone wanting to give it a try.

6 TORCHLIGHT

Whether it's the first Torchlightgame or the second, we recommend either. Some members of the development team for both games are also some of the original developers for the first and second Diablo game. You might even find the music all too familiar in Torchlight I or II if you've been a longtime fan of Diablo.

In any case, what sets Torchlight apart is its cartoonish graphics and steampunk setting. The classes are varied enough to warrant replayability, and the developers went out of their way to make the loot as addicting as possible with set items giving mouth-watering bonuses and increasing theory-crafting possibilities.

5 WOLCEN: LORDS OF MAYHEM

One of the biggest gripes for Diablo III is the cartoonish graphics; pair that with the rather arcade-like skill customization and the game looks a lot less hardcore and deep compared to its predecessor. Now, if you want something close to Diablo III's atmosphere but doesn't make the same design choices it did, Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem is a close competitor.

It's from an indie developer and as of now, is still in the early access phase but it's very much playable and fun. Wolcen showcases electrifying combat with highly-detailed characters and enemies. Plus the art style and atmosphere are notably darker than Diablo III's. Again, it's still in early access, but already has a nearby released date of January 2020.

4 BOOK OF DEMONS

If you want a hack-and-slash aRPG that brings something new and exciting to the table, then Book of Demons might satiate your need for novelty. It's a hybrid between a dueling card game and a dungeon crawler aRPG. It's an odd pairing, but Book of Demons somehow made it work seamlessly.

As a result, what you get is a fresh take on the Diablo formula where instead of collecting loot, you collect cards and strengthen your deck instead. It's not only the gameplay that's unique, but also the art and graphics. Book of Demons utilizes a storybook papercraft aesthetic that gives charm to the game without diluting its ominous undertones. It's a complete game too, and doesn't cost much to buy.

3 THE INCREDIBLE ADVENTURES OF VAN HELSING

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing puts its own twist in the aRPG formula by picking a rather unexplored time period. Instead of medieval fantasy, it takes place in a Victorian fantasy era where, as you might have guessed, it lets you play the famed Van Helsing back in his younger days.

It also swaps the big bad demon for a big bad vampire since the game is based on the novel Dracula by Bram Stoker. Despite the lack of character or class choice (you only get to play as Van Helsing), the gameplay still offers enough variety for multiple playthroughs and difficulty levels. It's worth trying alone for a unique setting.

2 SACRED

On the surface level, Sacred appears to be a mere Diablo clone. But once you get to play it, you'll soon see that it's more high-fantasy compared to Diablo. With that out of the way, Sacred is also one of the lesser-known franchises overshadowed by Blizzard's aRPG giant. It has since spawned three main titles with plenty of expansions.

It's mostly the first game you'll want to play though, since the sequels are less ambitious. The first Sacred was somewhat ahead of its time and included a sandbox open-world where exploration is actually rewarding compared to most other aRPGs and dungeon crawlers. Give it a try if you can withstand the graphics; if not, then there are the sequels.

1 PATH OF EXILE

Last but not least, we have here the closest thing ever to a Diablo II successor. Path of Exilehas often been hailed as the spiritual successor to the first two Diablo games, even more so than Diablo III. It's a free-to-play online aRPG whose greatest strength is how you can customize your playstyle.

This is all thanks to the several layers of gameplay elements, from the circuit board-like passive skill tree, the skill gems, and the armor sockets. All come together to create the deepest aRPG character build system in years. Be warned though, the learning curve is pretty steep, and the game will surely intimidate anyone who hasn't played Diablo II.
